They are on Findmypast newspapers.  Unfortunately the articles give no other useful information apart from the address  :(

There are some newspaper articles (1916/1919) mentioning The Scandinavian Butter Import Co. Ltd, one article refers to it as The Scandinavian Butter Market Import Co. Ltd.  The address is Pudding Chare, Newcastle.

The Stay Safe Board / Re: Morrisons & Sainsbury ban shoppers without face masks
« on: Tuesday 12 January 21 17:14 GMT (UK)  »
I went to my local Morrisons this morning, a sign outside read "no face covering - no entry". Some were wearing masks, others wearing visors so either seems to be acceptable. 

However, a few were not wearing any kind of face covering.  They may be exempt due to medical issues or they just took them off after they passed by the security guard on the door.  Two young men were going around the store wearing their masks as chin warmers, shouting across the aisles to each other.  They then spent quite a while at the cooked chicken counter talking very loudly to the girl serving (she had her mask on).  No one approached them to remind them that they need to wear their masks properly while they are shopping - not just when they walk through the door!

Staffordshire / Re: Eastwall, Cheadle 1841 census

Some more information here in case you haven't already seen it.

East Wall Farmhouse
"The farm lies on the boundary of the parishes of Cheadle and Oakamoor and is not shown on the relevant Tithe Map of 1843. The site was apparently then occupied by a number of cottages"

Viktoria, your humour has had me in stitches many times, "And at the last minute I will sit up and shout I have changed my mind! almost made me choke on my wine.  You keep our spirits up in these difficult times  :-*

The Stay Safe Board / Re: Giving the gift of Covid-19 this Christmas
« on: Wednesday 30 December 20 13:06 GMT (UK)  »
I think it depends on how quickly the person who tests positive enters their results into the app.  It could be a few days before they realise/remember that they have to enter them to alert close contacts.

On the 29th December OH received an alert on his NHS Covid-19 app to say he had been in close contact with someone who had tested positive (this could only have been at work, he works in a large Royal Mail sorting centre).  It said he should self isolate for 5 days, the norm is 10 days so obviously the first 5 days of his isolation had aready gone without him knowing about it.

OH and I stayed at home for Christmas day rather spend it with family to keep everyone safe.  Had we chosen to spend Christmas Day with family he could have been a risk to them (some elderly/vulnerable) without even knowing that he should have been self isolating on that day.

I'm so glad we made the sensible decision for Christmas.
